We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Voskelly Barn:

We had a very enjoyable stay at Voskelly Barn. There is plenty of room in the house. The gardens and comfy seating area perfect for al fresco dining and sundowners. I saw lots of butterflies. A quiet and peaceful place to stay. It is ideally situated for going down to St Mawes. We took the car as it is quite a steep walk up from the town. The ferry ride to Falmouth and Trelissik house and garden are both lovely things to do.

The most beautiful retreat for family & friends to get together with lots of space for everyone… there were parts of the house & garden I didn’t even get to spend time in it was so spacious.

A beautiful property and setting. Fanatstic space and a gorgoeus garden. Great position to be able to get in and out of St Mawes.
